Region 9 Updates

___________________________________________________________

While it’s been 40 years since we have needed taxpayer funding, we need financial relief to continue to serve this country through this crisis – and we need it now. Please take a minute to contact your member of Congress and your Senator to let them know how serious this is. In the next stimulus package we need the following:

1.) Immediate funding of at least $25 billion
2.) Quarterly emergency funding to cover the difference between revenues and total USPS expenses for the duration of this crisis
3,) Funding to help the Postal Service cover the cost of Covid-19 related sick and family leave
4.) Equal treatment for postal employees in legislation that authorizes and funds hazard pay for front-line workers in this crisis
5.) And finally, tell them we don’t need conditional loans that will only serve to add to a bankruptcy and/or privatization narrative when this crisis is over.

How to Contact Your Member of Congress!!

The  Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act) requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19

As a result of the rapidly changing events due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the NALC has established a dedicated page where you can read updates, memos, stand up talks, as well as using it a source for more information. I feel that it is easier for me to post the link here, rather than asking you to read through pages and pages of documents. If there is any more information you need, please contact me.
